Krohn Quinta Retiro Novo
This product is currently sold out.
Wiese & Krohn was founded in 1865 by two Norwegians - Theodor Wiese and Dankert Krohn - shipping initially to Scandinavia and Germany. In the century and a half since its foundation, Krohn has built up an outstanding reputation. Long renowned for the quality of their sublime Colheitas (single vintage tawnies), they produce a remarkably complete range for a small house, and each wine excels in its category. Much of the secret lies in the high quality of their vineyards - the magical combination of terroir, locality, aspect, incline and low-yielding vines.
This single Quinta Port is produced from the excellent Quinta do Retiro Novo property and offers a fantastic insight into the quality and style of Krohn's estate. Single Quinta Ports are typically made in good vintages, 'though not the best, as grapes from the very best years are typically used for a house's 'classic' Vintage Port instead. Single Quintas offer a more approachable, earlier drinking style to classic Vintage Ports, at a more attractive price point. This should have the potential to age for 25 years or more.
Quinta do Retiro Novo is full-bodied and loaded with fruit. This single Quinta port has the concentration and depth of the hot 2005 vintage with layers of black cherry, dark bramble fruits, grippy tannins and vibrant acidity. A powerful, full-bodied and unfiltered Port, so decant, and serve with well-matured blue cheese.
